Volvo Rents Expands in California

May 21, 2012

Volvo Rents has acquired Rental Solutions, a three-location construction equipment rental company with stores in Napa Valley, Santa Rosa and Cloverdale, Calif. This is the latest of six California acquisitions and gives Volvo Rents 12 rental centers. It now has 120 in North America.

“California’s economy is growing again, and will see strong economic growth over the near- and long-term, translating into greater construction activity,” said Mike Crouch, vice president of business development. “The acquisition of Rental Solutions is a strategic move that will further strengthen our presence in California and puts us in a favorable position to meet what will undoubtedly translate into a growing demand for construction equipment rental.”

Mark Nichols, who co-founded Rental Solutions in 2002, will remain active with the operations/management of all three locations as general manager.
